Video: “I’ve Got a Crush … on Obama”

posted at 3:28 pm on June 13, 2007 by Allahpundit

It’s obviously a goof; the question is whether it’s a goof from the left or the right. I figured liberals must be behind it, for the simple reason that no right-thinking conservative would cast a hottie this atomic as an Obama fan. It’s free marketing for him, even as parody.

Turns out it comes from a site called Barely Politics. One glance at the blogroll solves the mystery.

I doubt it’s from the right. Even in a parody, we don’t tend to say things like “You tell the truth unlike those on the right.”

JadeNYU on June 13, 2007 at 3:33 PM

Hotty yes

Braindead definitely nice to look at without the sound and the pics of Osama

Kevin43 on June 13, 2007 at 3:33 PM

I think I’m gonna be sick!

Dread Pirate Roberts VI on June 13, 2007 at 3:34 PM

Uh..

Dash on June 13, 2007 at 3:40 PM

Hot? Yup. Smart? Nope.

Sadly, this isn’t far off base. I’m sure there will be plenty of twenty-something year old Libs who’ll vote for Obama or Hillary just so they can say they did. Not for the political reasons – no. Just because it’s cool to do. Yet, their votes can decide the candidates. Sad. They barely leave their PS3s long enough to vote, but they decide the next President.

amerpundit on June 13, 2007 at 3:42 PM

There’s a poll on their front page, “Which candidate do you have a crush on?”. Obama leads with 51%, then Romney with 18%, Hillary with 16%, and Rudy with 8%. Edwards only gets 3%, as does Kucinich.

amerpundit on June 13, 2007 at 3:44 PM

puke

heatherrc77 on June 13, 2007 at 3:45 PM

They’re also not a literate bunch. “I got a crush on Obama” should be “I’ve got a crush on Obama”.

amerpundit on June 13, 2007 at 3:46 PM

She had a crush on Kerry. Sounds like a real whinner?

Kini on June 13, 2007 at 3:47 PM

You all are rough.

She was hot. And, I might switch my vote.

nailinmyeye on June 13, 2007 at 3:55 PM

This is why I voted “no” on universal voting from home. This braindead twinkie’s motto: Vote or … whatever.

jdpaz on June 13, 2007 at 3:55 PM

Seriously, folks. This is the most honest ad I’ve seen from the Left in ages. This is exactly why he’s popular (and that’s an irony-free comment).

Halley on June 13, 2007 at 3:55 PM

…yikes I was having a flashback during the “oval office” reference.

jdpaz on June 13, 2007 at 3:56 PM

Are you kidding me? The same type of thing was done to Harold Ford Jr. last year. If the libs were behind this, they certainly have proved that they will never learn anything from history. It’s all sex and sexuality that sells with them.

Now lets see if there will be an uproar from the MSM bozos.

kevcad on June 13, 2007 at 3:56 PM

Somewhere, there’s an “I’ve got a crush on Ron Paul” girl….

rw on June 13, 2007 at 3:58 PM

At that site, under their logo it says, “America’s new poll dancers.”

Heh.

nailinmyeye on June 13, 2007 at 3:58 PM

I couldn’t watch it all the way through. Gag. On so many levels.

RushBaby on June 13, 2007 at 4:00 PM

There’s a poll on their front page, “Which candidate do you have a crush on?”. Obama leads with 51%, then Romney with 18%, Hillary with 16%, and Rudy with 8%. Edwards only gets 3%, as does Kucinich.

How did Ron Paul miss this poll?

JayHaw Phrenzie on June 13, 2007 at 4:00 PM

It’s seriously almost like that.

see-dubya on June 13, 2007 at 4:02 PM

Same chick (Performed by Leah Kauffman) from “My Box in a Box.”

She looks a lot better now than in the Olby vid at that site.

nailinmyeye on June 13, 2007 at 4:04 PM

How bouts a Kucinich crush, but with a tinfoil girl?
Or an Orange Crush on a Hillary Gurl, like the code pinko pill box hat, dude or girl, whateva….

Kini on June 13, 2007 at 4:06 PM

Kauffman says in the Olby interview at “My Box in a Box” that she is looking to do more satire. That’s what I’ll bet this site is about.

nailinmyeye on June 13, 2007 at 4:08 PM

Dumb.

Good Lt on June 13, 2007 at 4:21 PM

The same type of thing was done to Harold Ford Jr. last year.
kevcad on June 13, 2007 at 3:56 PM

Exactly what it reminded me of. All that’s missing is “Hey Harold Barry, call me.”

Brat on June 13, 2007 at 4:32 PM

She’s “talented.” ;)

Malpaso on June 13, 2007 at 4:36 PM

Dammit. Now I have to vote for Obama.

Baphomet on June 13, 2007 at 4:45 PM

She’s all class.

PRCalDude on June 13, 2007 at 4:51 PM

the question is whether it’s a goof from the left or the right.

Considering that the political left, which now includes the Dems, has become a parody of itself–is itself a goof but doesn’t know it, I’m going to go with them. AHA, Daily Kos right there in the links–what do I win?

smellthecoffee on June 13, 2007 at 4:58 PM

The line in the song which states “You tell the truth unlike those on the right” is a lie.

What more can one say?

By the way, since when did people get the idea that Barack Obama was good looking, or for that matter, when did people start thinking he was articulate?

From what I have seen and heard of him, he is not much of either, nor has he expressed any original ideas. Perhaps the Democrats just are overjoyed that someone can put two sentences together without the help of their first grade teacher and Obama is the exception to the normal, foul mouthed, studdering, neck vein popping, inarticulate leftist-liberal Democrat.

By the way, I did not find the girl so attractive either. She seemed kinda’ skanky. Not my cup of tea.

William2006 on June 13, 2007 at 5:02 PM

Okay, so it’s “stuttering,” not “suddering.”

William

William2006 on June 13, 2007 at 5:04 PM

Ditto and ditto and ditto and ditto, William.

RushBaby on June 13, 2007 at 5:05 PM

Couldn’t get through more than about a minute of it. Man, that sucked.

tickleddragon on June 13, 2007 at 5:11 PM

Proof that the best Democratic presidentual candidate is a card board cut-out caracature.

Or is that the standard democratic candidate ?

William Amos on June 13, 2007 at 5:12 PM

If I had made it down at the bottom I would ask, can the Messiah resist?

Speakup on June 13, 2007 at 5:13 PM

It is much more tolerable if you watch and don’t listen.

b4itsover on June 13, 2007 at 5:21 PM

I’ll bet Michelle Obama is ready willing and able to throw down with this Bee-iotch

abinitioadinfinitum on June 13, 2007 at 5:31 PM

Hot? Yup.

If you mean Obama (and I know you didn’t), I beg to differ–even if he weren’t such a Leftist.

baldilocks on June 13, 2007 at 5:33 PM

Talk about working the poll.
Time for a smoke.

Did AP fall for the link bait? He sure did.

Yuk. That was really bad. It all sucked. Was it supposed to be funny?…

4shoes on June 13, 2007 at 5:54 PM

Though you gotta love the part where they guys in the office cubicle mouth “shut the f*ck up!”

BrunoMitchell on June 13, 2007 at 6:21 PM

I had no idea my wife liked Obama. Crap!

robblefarian on June 13, 2007 at 6:34 PM

I’m at work at the moment, so I had to watch it with the audio off; just looking at the video, though, a couple of title candidates came to mind:

1. “I wanna get f***ed by Obama.”
– or –
2. “Once you go Barack, you never go back.”

She was kinda hot, though.

Spurius Ligustinus on June 13, 2007 at 6:46 PM

Those white pumps were hot!

The video is funny because it wasn’t a spoof. Truth is funnier than fiction.

I’m still waiting for the charge of guilty White people objectifying Obama as some sort of Mandingo fantasy. It’s coming…trust!

SouthernGent on June 13, 2007 at 6:58 PM

What will those young Republicans think of next?

Mojave Mark on June 13, 2007 at 7:11 PM

Does anyone find irony in that Leah Kauffman (“Obama Girl” in the video) appears to be a much more attractive version of Monica Lewinsky and she sings “…the new Oval Office, you’ll get your Head of State…”?

ITookTheRedPill on June 13, 2007 at 7:19 PM

Eh, she’s cute enough. She can certainly fill out a bikini well.

But all thinks considered, she’s got nothing on Mary Katharine Ham.

Until MKH goes for Obama, I’m not going for Obama!

Anton on June 13, 2007 at 7:58 PM

Make that “all things considered,” not thinks

Insert standard gripe about missing post-editing feature here.

Anton on June 13, 2007 at 8:05 PM

I’d like to poll the ladies here.. is Obama really the best looking of all the candidates? I would think it would be Romney… maybe it’s because I like chicks, but I feel like if I was a broad, Romney would be it.

RightWinged on June 13, 2007 at 8:16 PM

Anyone working on the I got a crush on Guilani or Fred gets me hot videos?

Cmon people that video is ripe for spoofing it isnt comedy is DEAD

Kevin43 on June 13, 2007 at 8:29 PM

Perhaps Jeri singing Wild Thing with a slight change in lyrics

Fred T
You make my heart sing
You make everything
Come on, Fred T
Fred T, I think you move me
But I gotta know for sure
Come on and hold me tight
Oh you move me
Fred T
You make my heart sing
You make everything
Come on, Fred T
Fred T, I think I need you
But I gotta know for sure
Come on and squeeze me tight
Oh I need it
Fred T
You make my heart sing
You make everything
Come on, Fred T

And of course one by Fred for CsDeven

chorus from Don’t Cha

Dont cha wish your nominee was hot like me
Dont cha wish your nominee had a truck like me
Dont cha, dont cha
Dont cha wish your nominee was raw like me
Dont cha wish your nominee was fun like me
Dont cha, dont cha

Bradky on June 13, 2007 at 8:53 PM

She’s lying.

No girl this foxy would go for that jug-eared geek.

(Looking for a record contract.

In all the wrong places.)

she’s pretty good-lookin gal

MoleOnABull on June 13, 2007 at 11:09 PM

How did Ron Paul miss this poll?

JayHaw Phrenzie on June 13, 2007 at 4:00 PM

That must be the one online poll that his cultists didn’t spam to death. And then they do things like write my local newspaper and claim that Paul overwhelmingly won online polls taken after the debates, as if that’s some kind of credential when it only happened because his Kool-Aid drinkers stuffed the ballot boxes.

ReubenJCogburn on June 13, 2007 at 11:21 PM

Space-age bra technology or bodacioulicious?

I say hi-tech.

OK Spurius, its the short bus for you. Move over Mel, we got company for you. Baaawwwaaaaahahahahahahahahhaha

auspatriotman on June 14, 2007 at 12:48 AM

I made it 47 seconds before I had to stop. She’s hot, but not hot enough to make me endure any more than that.

windbag on June 14, 2007 at 12:50 AM

Just goes to show you that a gal with looks becomes ugly as hell when she becomes a democrat.

csdeven on June 14, 2007 at 1:01 AM

windbag on June 14, 2007 at 12:50 AM

windgab,

She is hot?

Compared to what?

Here are a few examples of what she would be hot when compared next to them:

Rosie O’Donnel

Whoopie Goldberg

Hillary Clinton

Osama bin Laden

The south end of a north bound horse

Joy Behar

Most of the leadership of NOW

The carrion after a pride of lions have had their fill.

A hyena

Just a few, who, when placed next to the girl in that video, would go to help her pass for “hot.”

Fox and Friends had this video on this morning about 6:10 AM Central time. Nothing earth-shattering, they played some clips and made some quips.

Hotty yes

Braindead definitely nice to look at without the sound and the pics of Osama

Kevin43 on June 13, 2007 at 3:33 PM

Funny, I didn’t see Obama in that whole thing . . wait, what did you say?

MirCat on June 14, 2007 at 2:21 PM

I have zero use for flouncing tramps on video. Doesn’t do a thing for me, regardless of what message is being attempted. Hot? No, it requires much more than a passing physical attractiveness to earn that term from me. Maybe I’m just spoiled, after sharing my life with the real thing these past 20+ years.

The young and mindless who would move to Obama’s camp over this are already there, this does nothing positive for him.

I know, such a freakin’ shame too.

Tim Burton on June 14, 2007 at 5:22 PM

Overheard after screening of this video:

Barack: I need a good aide. I’ve seen a great candidate.
Michelle: If it’s who I think, you’re gonna need protection.
Barack: Why, do you think I’m like Bill?
Michelle: Oh not that protection; you’ll never get a chance. I mean that new Secret Service protection – from me!

IrishEyes on July 5, 2007 at 7:27 PM

The DNC has taken politics right down into the gutter featuring a pole dancing skank bumping and grinding for Obama votes.

Frankly, I am appalled that they would even think this is acceptable in a campaign for President of the United States.
